Nowhere Nights, a spoken word and live music event which has been taking place in Flat Iron Square, has become increasingly popular over the last few months and is set to take over a new venue this Saturday (27th April).
Due to sell-out events, Nowhere Nights will now be relocating to The Siding, Flat Iron Square, with a capacity of up to 100 people. The venue promises those attending a great view of the acts from both the ground floor and from the upstairs bar, which overlooks the stage.
To celebrate the move, Oliver Cable, Nowhere Nights creator and host, has created a special line-up. Musicians are folk singer-songwriter Bity Booker and jazz quartet Vellichor. Spoken word on the night comes from Dean Atta, who has been anthologised by Bad Betty Press, Emma Press, Stripes Publishing, Team Angelica and has appeared on BBC One, BBC Radio 4, BBC World Service and Channel 4. Dean was named as one of the most influential LGBT people in the UK by the Independent on Sunday. Oliver Cable himself will also perform a set of his poetry. Artist Shahina Jaffer will be responding to the performers through the medium of paint, producing a live painting throughout the evening.
Nowhere Nights is on at The Siding, 6 O’Meara St, Borough, SE1 1TE on Saturday 27th April at 7pm – 10pm. Admission: £12.
